Youth cafés

Our Youth Cafes are for anyone aged 12 to 17 to come and hang out, have dinner, join in regular activities and competitions, and get involved in community projects.

The cafes are free, supervised by youth workers and volunteers, and you can get a taxi home for $2.

How we operate

  • We provide a safe, supervised environment.
  • Everyone must sign in when they arrive.
  • We expect young people and their families to follow the Youth Cafe rules.
  • The cafes are for young people, so we do not allow adults on site without approval. This includes parents, older friends or people working for other agencies.
  • Staff are not authorised to keep young people at the Youth Cafe if they don't want to be there, even at the request of parents.
  • Supervision does not extend off-site if young people choose to leave the Youth Cafe.
  • Youth Cafe staff will not get involved in or take responsibility for issues that occur outside of Cafe activities or operation times.
  • For $2, young people can be taxied to their door at the end of the evening.

COVID safety

Please follow the NSW Government COVID-19 rules and regulations by:

  • keeping a safe distance from others
  • washing hands thoroughly before and after attending
  • using the provided hand sanitiser
  • completing mandatory QR check in
  • stay home if unwell.
